Old School MTV Is Making A Comeback With New Station MTV Classic!

This is the best idea that MTV has had since they decided to create Laguna Beach, let’s be real, this station has been dragging since. I mean don’t get me wrong, I still watch The Challenge but that is all I watch on that station. The other day I had to explain what TRL was to someone, can you even imagine how old I felt?

Starting on August 1st, VH1 Classic will turn into MTV Classic and everything is going to be incredible.

I am ready to watch old episodes of Real World, Daria, Laguna Beach, The Hills, and many more, this is seriously the best idea ever. Nostalgia is so hot right now!

Thank you to whoever decided this was a good idea.

I am ready to binge watch.

Lauren Conrad Will Return To MTV For ‘The Hills’ Anniversary Special!

So far what we know about this special is that it will be airing on August 2nd, and it is tentatively titled The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now, again that is just what MTV has put out there, not sure if it is the real title as of yet.

Before you ask, of course I am salty that MTV is doing something with ‘The Hills’ but completely ignored ‘Laguna Beach’. I mean Laguna is what changed the game when it came to reality television shows. Right? They should have respected it!

Now that I got that off of my chest, Lauren is the only confirmed guest so far. I have a feeling that Audrina and Whitney will be there. As for Spencer and Heidi? I guess we will have to wait and see. For some reason I can’t picture Lauren being over their fight, even though it’s been years. Kristin Cavallari has been bad mouthing the show like crazy lately, so she probably wasn’t invited or something, and Brody? One can only hope.

It’s been ten years since the show aired and now Lauren Conrad is a fashion and lifestyle mogul. She has come a long way from being MTV’s favorite realtiy star.

Are you excited for this? I am.

Is There A ‘Laguna Beach’ Reunion In The Making?

Let’s go back, back to the beginning….

Obviously it is very documented that I still love ‘Laguna Beach‘ it may have been released 12 years ago but I will never get over this show. It’s too quotable and truly the first reality show of its kind.

So I wasl ooking through Jason Wahler’s Instagram and I came across a picture of him, along with Alex M, Christina, Morgan, and Taylor. Immediately I had to dig deeper. By dig deeper I mean look at their Instagram accounts as well and here is what I found.

Now everyone has also tagged E News! which means that MTV isn’t cashing in on what will most likely be a rating hit. I mean when they play the old school episodes during the summer, people go crazy for that stuff.

So far there have been no dates released or anything, just those photos. I also did tweet Alex M, asking if there was a reunion show and she simply Favorited it, so I am going to go with yes, there is a reunion show coming up.

MTV you gon and fucked up not making this reunion show a priority on your list. I hope that the whole cast is involved with this reunion, only time will tell.

The Boys Of ‘Laguna Beach’ Reunited For A Special Birthday

It’s always nice to know that some things on reality television were real. The friendship of Stephen, Dieter, and Trey was one of the realest things that played on the reality tv show, ‘Laguna Beach’. That is if you believe Kristin Cavallari saying that everything on the show was basically staged.

Anyway!

Over the weekend the three best friends that anyone could have got together to celebrate Trey turning the big 3-0. That’s right, Trey came into our lives when he was just 18 and now he is a 30 years old designing wedding dresses for Vera Wang. Remember Polster? Yeah, he was there too.

Luckily for us they documented it through Instagram posts so we could all feel as though we were part of the celebration.

Human gem. Happy Birthday, Trey.

A post shared by Stephen Colletti (@stephencolletti) on

I would say these are the moments I wish I was living in New York City but it is probably for the best because if I ran into this group of people, I would lose it. I couldn’t calmly ask for a photo or anything, I would just freak out.

Happy birthday Trey, you have aged like a fine wine!

Also I can’t believe MTV has yet to do any type of reunion with this cast, they are really missing out on a giant ratings boost.

Man Crush Monday: Jason Wahler

 


Michael Buckner/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images

Jason Wahler, we all remember him as being the resident bad boy from ‘Laguna Beach‘ and ‘The Hills‘. In the early 2000’s most ladies out there fell in love with him because who doesn’t love a bad boy that fell for the good girl, right? Usually with my Man Crush Monday picks I try and pick people who have been in the media recently and Jason hasn’t been for a little bit now. Why did I pick him this week you ask? Well, I recently started to follow him on Instagram and he has aged extremely well!

Now let’s think about it. Jason got himself in a bit of trouble when he was younger but guess what, he has grown up. J. Wahl, as they referred to him on ‘Laguna Beach’ one time, is now an advocate for sobriety and speaks out about how becoming sober changed his life for the better. After his stint on ‘Celebrity Rehab’ it seemed to completely change his whole outlook on life.  You have to give him credit for that!

Jason is still extremely handsome. He is no longer that 18 year old with spikey hair and questionable highlights. He is 29 and looking better than ever and he is married! No more being a player for this guy. He also still resembles Colin Farrell so that is always a plus.

Glad to see someone change their life around for the better!

Happy Monday!

Kristin Cavallari’s #TBT Will Make You Miss “Laguna Beach”

Regardless of whether you were on Team Kristin or Team LC, I think we can all agree those Laguna Beach times were the good old days, and this #TBT Kristin Cavallari just posted takes us back!

Flipping through#BalancingInHeels is a little trip down memory lane. We were babies! Link in bio #LagunaBeach #HighSchool #TBT

Kristin wants to go and talk all this smack about ‘Laguna Beach‘ but she knows what the people want! No one wants to see a picture of your husband, we want more throwbacks like this, okay?

Apparently Kristin is coming out with a book about balancing her life or something like that, what better way to sell it then to let people know that they will get the scoop on some ‘Laguna Beach’ stuff. I don’t care how long ago that show aired I will watch it whenever it is on. You feel? Two season and that show changed reality television forever.

I may be team LC, but Kristin you were hilarious. Bring back that character you created and you’ll probably have your own show without any issue.

I would just like to add I can’t believe MTV hasn’t done a special with this cast. They need a two hour special with the cast from both season 1 and 2, it would break any record of any show ever aired on MTV.

Happy 30th Birthday Lauren Conrad!

Can you believe that it has been 12 years since Lauren Conrad first stepped onto our television screens with the insanely popular ‘Laguna Beach’? I can’t believe it either. Of course after ‘Laguna Beach’ there was the possibly even more popular ‘The Hills’ which she dominated for six seasons.

Lauren Conrad has always been one of my favorite reality stars of all time. In my opinion she always held herself together and her quotes were the best. Of course a lot of those quotes were probably scripted but they were delivered perfectly! Let’s be real, she also came out as one of the more successful reality stars. She was able to step away from the cameras, start a clothing line, start a book series, and still have her shit together. You have to give credit where it is due.

Now let’s celebrate with some of my all time favorite LC gifs!

and my personal all time favorite Lauren Conrad line ever

Kristin Cavallari Opens Up About ‘Laguna Beach’ To Elle Magazine

When asked why she continues to negotiate with an industry as fickle as Hollywood, Cavallari reminds me that she’s been working since she was 14 years old. “I was a hostess when MTV came,” she says, bundled up in a cashmere throw on an oversize couch in a living room littered with toys and the clutter of two little boys. “We filmed Thursday to Sunday, which is typically when I would host, so I had to quit my job essentially to do the show—and we got paid. So, yeah, I looked at it as a job.” It’s a pretty cynical outlook for a teenager who, along with about a dozen of her surf-loving, beach-highlighted schoolmates, was cast in the MTV series that would all but define aspirational youth for a generation. But, according to Cavallari, the premise of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County was never properly explained to its subjects. “No one knew what that show was going to become, obviously,” she says. “I had envisioned it being, like, do you remember True Life on MTV? I thought it was going to be like that. None of us knew that it was going to be turned into a soap opera. And, so, filming the first season, we were sort of just going along with it, listening to producers, doing what they asked, not realizing—me especially—that we were going to be edited the way we were.” The age-old plot that catapulted its two female leads, Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad, into enduring fame was also news to the ensemble’s feisty underdog. “I also didn’t realize the love triangle was going on,” she says while Cutler and Camden roughhouse with a toy dustbuster on the carpet beneath her feet. “Steven [Colletti] was my real boyfriend, so that was really difficult for me to watch. Even though a lot of it was manipulated and for the show, it’s still hard to see your boyfriend going and hanging out with a girl that he probably normally wouldn’t. It was tough for me.” Of the media’s lasting fascination with their feud: “You were either the Lauren or you were the Kristin.” (http://www.elle.com/culture/celebrities/a28695/at-home-with-kristin-cavallari/)

Kristin Cavallari has always been such an interesting person to me for a few different reasons. Well first off, she is still relevant. I don’t know what the fuck she does now other than interviews but she is relevant. Homegirl is out there hustling still and good for her. I want her to write a complete tell all about Laguna Beach since she bashes it every chance that she gets, but hey, apparently she doesn’t need to do that when she has platforms like Elle magazine.

Listen, everyone is aware that the show you were on as a teenager was moderately scripted and edited to look a certain way. She always says how she wasn’t that big of a bitch and so on. She played the part well which was nice though. I am also continued that she said she was only 14 when the show started? So at the moment she is 28, the show started in 2004, so she was most likely 16 when she was cast for the show. I don’t know if she is trying to mess with our heads, but you aren’t 24 Kristin.

I genuinely don’t know why she needs to bash the show that made her famous though. I know a lot of people do it but Kristin you are a reality television star who got lucky by marrying a pro athlete. People don’t know you as a fashion designer or a blogger, they know as the bad bitch from Laguna Beach.

Britney Spears Posts Photo With Kristin Cavallari

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B2CwvHNCIAAwbpO.jpg

Kristin Cavallari is the sneakiest person in the entire world! She is so sneaky famous I can’t even handle it! I mean I loved ‘Laguna Beach’ as much as the nest young female in the early 2000’s then of course she had to sneak in and steal ‘The Hills’ after Lauren flew the coup.

I have no idea how Kristin does it but she remains in the limelight, some how. I feel like at this point in my life I will probably never understand it, and that is okay. I have some to accept the fact that Kristin Cavallari has been famous for a solid ten years and will probably continue to be famous because she was such a bad bitch in high school.

Somehow she is still famous enough to get a picture with the queen Britney Spears, could you imagine if someone like Alex M tried to get backstage? People would laugh in her face! Not Kristin though, she knows how to pull strings, and marry football players.

Sneaky Kristin, I am going to keep up with Kristin now. Honestly, I am so surprised that she doesn’t have her own reality television show. Is anyone else surprised by this?

What It Means To Be Team LC or Team Kristin Ten Years Later

If you were a young adult, no I hate that saying, if you were a teenager in the early 2000’s there was one rivalry that you couldn’t get away from, Kristin Cavallari vs Lauren Conrad. For those of you that didn’t indulge in reality television at the tender age of 12 they were on the MTV hit reality show Laguna Beach. Then they were both on the hit reality show The Hills and since then neither of them have been on a hit reality show. Lauren Conrad has moved on to fashion and writing her own successful book series, while Kristin Cavallari now has two kids with football player Jay Cutler and remains in the spotlight for a number of different things.

Back to the rivalry though! Everyone knows Lauren Conrad as the sweet girl next door who had a big old crush on Stephen Colletti but never really had her shot, until she kissed him while he was dating Kristin Cavallari. Yet some how Kristin stole him from Lauren, I don’t really remember, it has been a few years since I have watched the first season. ANYWAY it was clear down the line, some girls loved Kristin and some girls loved LC.

If you were a team Lauren fan there was a good chance that you had your heart broken by a Stephen type of character growing up. You were probably really good friends with them but that was all that you would ever be, a friend. They always looked at other girls and you sat around waiting for your chance. Team Kristin was the opposite, these types of girls go after what they want and don’t really care who they hurt in the process, as long as they get who or what they want.

There are both good and bad in both of these teams. Team Lauren seemed boring simply because even though Lauren Conrad went on to be one of the biggest reality stars of all time, she was kind of boring. She would sit in the corner and pout about how Stephen didn’t love her. Team Kristin was just a wild card in general, she could be dancing on a bar or she could be trying to sneakily steal your boyfriend. Always a tough battle.

Ten years later though I think it goes to show that everyone who was on Team LC chose the right team. Lauren Conrad is still talked about constantly even when she is being called basic by Seventeen Magazine whereas Kristin Cavallari is just praying to be talked about at all. Maybe in high school Kristin was the it girl but the moment she graduated she chased after Lauren’s coattails all the way to The Hills.

Team LC for life! Everyone has a little bit of Team Kristin in them though.

Tell me if you were Team LC or Team Kristin here!
